We are unable to print scanned PDF files
We are able to print non-scanned PDF files or any other file type.
We are using a two HP LaserJet M2727 Printers and the both have the same problem. Our Cannon Copiers print without issue.
We uninstalled the universal driver and installed the universal Post Script Driver and we got the same issue.

It sounds like a driver issue, I think you were on the right track.  Try the PCL drivers or see if there is a newer PostScript driver.

Don't use the drivers that shipped with the printer.  They are usually an early edition and are buggy.  HP has updated drivers for all their printers here:

I ran into this problem with word.  I used the laserjet 4000 plc and it worked.  Hopefully it works for you too.

It may be a memory issue.  Scanned PDF's are much larger files and the printer may not be buffering them due to low memory.
